Spring card

Hello there,

Nothing speaks Spring to me more than delicate blossoms in soft pink and green.  And of course water colours!! 

Today I share this card (card front/outside):

The floral image I did by painting water colors onto my stamp and then stamped on white card stock.  Butterfly stamped with Crush Olive, sentiment stamped with Raspberry.  The ribbon was dyed in Barn Door and Spun Sugar distress ink diluted with water.

Here's a shot of the inside, I use the same image and method to stamp a top and bottom border in the inside of my card. 

And I will enter it to the following challenges:

Virginia's View Challenge #1 - Water colours

Magenta's March Challenge - Spring is Coming

Little Tangles Challenge#32 - Inside of a card


Floral image from Magenta (C0850-M)
Butterfly from KaiserCraft (CS854)
Sentiment from Simon Says Stamp (Flower Friend Set)

Holbein Artists' Water Colours
Ranger Distress (Crushed Olive, Barn Door, Spun Sugar)
Versa Color (Raspberry)

White silk ribbon

Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day!!
